No Parkin Zone

Researchers nab possible cell killer in Parkinson's disease

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Like a kid who misbehaves while her mother naps, a protein might run amok when cellular supervision wanes, triggering Parkinson's disease (PD). According to new work, quantities of the protein soar when another molecule that normally keeps it in check falters. The study suggests a new way to stanch the loss of brain cells in PD.
